Zags Take Fifth At The Head Of The American
Oct. 28, 2017
GOLD RIVER, Calif. – The Gonzaga varsity eight put down a quality performance at the Head of the American on Saturday afternoon on Lake Natoma in Gold River, Calif., taking fifth in a field of 31 boats.
The Zags came home at 16:15.8, just behind three boats from Cal and the San Diego crew. The Bulldogs did beat crews from UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, UC Davis, and USC. The place was two spots better than last year.
“We raced a solid race but I had hoped for a little aggressiveness in the middle of the race course,” Gonzaga head coach Dan Gehn said.
The 5,000-meter race took place on Lake Natoma and the last 2,000 meters of the race are the race course the Zags compete on for the Western Sprints at the end of the season.
The Bulldogs will wrap their fall season next weekend at the Head of the Lake on Lake Union in Seattle on Saturday.
